  • Goal:to share latest thinking in social media as it relates to sports, highlight value of E mail, and correlate sports to movie marketing (common denominator is FANS)
  • Level set on value of social: Fans are connected. Social media can be more efficient communication channel than traditional media if it’s done well
  • But collecting lots of fans isn’t (in itself) a profitable exercise…remember Beanie Babies?
  • Sports fans are opting to follow teams…in massive numbers (thanks to Facebook & Twitter)…and they all look the same from a distance
  • Some beanie babies are worth more than others. Same is true for fans
  • Understand human drivers (join the tribe, but stand out within tribe). Fan psychology…sports and movie fans have some things in common…but how do we learn more about them and find profitable segments?
  • Coyle Media set out to learn about fans who follow sports team across the globe.
  • We’ve learned that “Social” sports fans (and social channels) are not all the same
  • Social sports fans are early adopters, but not at same rate – broken down by league, social channel
  • Female fans are more social than men
  • Social fans who subscribe to team E mail newsletters seem to be high value

  • My observations in sports1. Most teams treat all fans as if they’re equal2. E mail outperforms social in direct marketing ROI (tickets), yet teams invest more in social3. We recommend teams should work harder at: A. Understanding fan data B. Segmenting fan audiences C. Cross promoting with all social channels 15
  • Identify – Target - Personalize - Refine Engage the most valuable segments 16
  • Final thought on social media:You can’t please everyone anyway Own it in social media 17
